Recipe by Kitchen_Kouture

This is the easiest recipe you have ever made. Just throw it together and put it in the oven. No watching, basting, or mess. This meat is even better when frozen, and taken out for a week day meal.

OMG! These are the BEST! And we divided the leftovers in seal-a-meal packets and froze them...It's even better!!! Thank you for the recipe.
